Unexpectedly fun

"Fail. A remake is IMPOSSIBLE" those were the first words out of my mouth the moment I read about the TV show.


How can anyone replace the epic acting of Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles as the two ultimate social misfits of the high school hierarchy?


Though this strays from Shakespheare's "The Taming of the Shrew" - just like the movie did - it was undeniably enjoyable.


Bianca, the precocious teenager desperate to enter the cool crowd of high school is perfectly played out by Meaghan Jette Martin. Sweet as sugar but a real angsty teen when she doesn't get her way.


The show is shaping up to get even better, with the sharp wit of Kat and her disgruntle father (played by the original actor Larry Miller) making simple dinner scenes entertaining.


My question is: will the infamous scene of Heath Ledger singing be played out here as well? The choice of Ethan Peck as Patrick Verona was questionable. Could that pale, sweet-looking boy play out the manly role of Patrick Verona? The moment he got onto his bike, and growled out a few syllables to Kat my heart melted at his manly voice and i knew he was "the one".


I have nothing to say against this show except this, "Patrick Verona needs more exposure!"


Looking forward to the upcoming episodes!
